Course Review and Comments
What a beautiful setting and course. The changes in elevation make it quite a hike, but the quality of the course was A+. Try not to get caught up in scoring because there aren't any gimme pars on this course. The driving areas are tight and the rough is penal so enjoy the walk and the views. Would play it again in a heartbeat. Had to pay out of state green fees, but even that was reasonable for a course of this caliber.

I can't wait to spend all weekend watching the U.S. Open. It's such a great tournament.
Here's a nice article on the history of the Open.

My buddy and I play it every year. Played the Black the Sunday after the open in 2002. Toughest course we have ever played. Keep going back every year. Drive from Ohio and camp out in the parking lot.

TOUGHER THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE. WE PLAYED WITH 9OO YARDS OF THE COURSE BEHIND US AND IT STILL KICKS BUTT. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND PLAY THIS ONE.

Most amazing course that I have ever played on...probably the most amazing course that I will ever play on, unless I have the honor of playing at St. Andrew's Old Course. Bethpage Black is an enigma.

This was very close to a religious experience! Tough and demanding course that is not for the faint of heart. There are many, many bunkers and a difficult 1st and very difficult 2nd cuts of rough.

Amazing...worth a US Open....ROUGH ROUGH ROUGH. Greens do not have much break save for a few greens. Hit every club in my bag. CANNOT wait to play again.
